Collecting his 15th career win with the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Power Coating, Justin Zimmerman was the class of the field at Texana Raceway on Friday night.
Taking second on the start, Zimmerman chased the No. 36 the opening four laps before taking the lead with a high line move off the second turn. Coming after the No. 1 a few laps later, Reed and Zimmerman made contact, but both were able to continue.
Fending off challenges through a handful of restarts, Zimmerman steadily pulled away through the closing laps to a margin of 2.952-seconds. Rolling to the green ninth, Dalton Stevens made the last-lap pass for the runner-up spot. Mason Smith was relegated to third, while Knick Stewart and Paul White completed the top five.
